Talk of Alaska: Eyewitness to Global Warming

World leaders meet this month in Bali (December 4 to 14) to begin work on a new treaty to succeed the Kyoto Agreement on limiting emissions of greenhouse gases. The United States called the last treaty “flawed” and never ratified it. This one will be different — it’s urgent and the pressure has grown with the unexpectedly large melt-back of the Arctic Ocean ice pack. On this week’s Talk of Alaska we chat with Arctic explorer John Stetson, who mushed a dog team across Baffin Island this year and is an “eyewitness to global warming.”GUESTS:
